So guys, gals, and folks of non-binary gender persuasions I’ve been looking for feedback on a custom class I’ve been developing for a player who was utterly in love with the Binder class from 3.5 and who is interested in joining a DW game that I may be starting up in the near future.
My inspirations for the DW Binder are a combination of the Goetic rites you see in the Lesser Key of Solomon, the freaky unnatural spirits detailed in 3.5’s treatment of Binders, a dash of lovecraft, and then a general seasoning of “caller up of dark and dangerous entities”. Distinct from the wizard in that the Binder’s power is very much externalized, and distinct from the Warlock in that the Binder gains power from control, whereas the Warlock gains power from surrender.
Let me know what you think. Of the moves, of the class in general, of it’s power level compared to the other classes, how fun it seems it’d be to play, and it’s thematic consistency. Also, if anyone wishes to assist me in writing a pithy introductory paragraph for the Binder, that would be most appreciated.
